Hi all,

Hope you can help.

I have a date field (B1) and am trying to concatenate this into a
directory path as part of a formula to pull data from another
IE My worksheets are named open"date of report".xls
B1 contains "date of report"
I have tried concatenating the worksheet name in a field and then
using that field.
I have tried cocatenating the directory path in a field and using that
My last attempt at a formula is


Date is 110903, worksheet name is open110903.xls.

If I manually type it in as below the formaula works dream.


Any assistance or direction pointing would be greatly appreciated.
I hope I have provided enough info.

Cheers Jason

1. Concatenate Text Fields to Date Field

2. Concatenate Text field and date field

I currently have an Access 2003 database.

In a Student table, I have SSN field that stores the last four digits of
Social security number. I also have a DOB Date/Time field for Date of Birth.

I want to calculate my unique identifier in my form so that the "Identifier"
is SSN&DOB. (We originally had the full social security as the identifier,
but that is no longer allowed due to privacy restrictions).

My problem is that when I concatenate, I am getting, for example,
00041/30/1985 instead of 000431077. How do I show the date as a number
instead of a date format?

Is this possible?
